Abstract Art Painting - Fluid Acrylic Pours
I was looking through the internet as you do, looking for new ideas for an abstract art project and came up with a technique that interested me, I actually found it on Hubpages.
take one canvas 700mm x 1000mm, 100ml of yellow acrylic paint, 50ml of red and 50ml of orange paint. dilute each colour with water to a 50/50 mix. make a frame around the canvas using some waterproof tape to make a tray rim of about 5mm deep, place the canvas on a table that is perfectly flat, poor the yellow paint onto the canvas and flood the whole panel all over with the yellow, then poor on some orange and then lift one side of the canvas a little, the paint will now move across the canvas, then add the red and lift each corner of the canvas at a time to help create a pattern, add more paint and continue until you like the effect. allow to dry over two days. Remove the tape around the edge of the canvas and hopefully the result will look pleasing. If the effect does not work you can always paint over the picture and start again.
Blue on Yellow Makes Green - August 2013
23rd June 2012. I had a problem trying to get the digital camera to pick up the actual colours of the picture. When I edited the image on the computer using a program called Corel Photo-Paint12 I came up with some interesting image effects by playing with the colour adjustments which I may come back to in the future.

Art Notes. Purple on Orange
Art notes. Purple on Orange 19th December 2012. The colour is actually orange but my stupid camera refuses to pic the colour out properly, tried editing the colours in Corel photo paint with no success. I shall have to buy a proper camera that catches the colours as they are in the real world, I find purples tend to come out as blue as well and gold comes out as a dull yellow.

The video below was found on Youtube, what an amazing picture using a similar method but with many layers of colour, I think i might have a go with move layers of colour but first I shall have to purchase some syringes to allow me to apply paint with more control and precision.

Cosmos Blue and silver on green
A practical use for abstract art.
Cosmos and silver on green notes October 17th 2013
Acrylic painted mixed 50/50 with water. Painted surface first with a solid colour of cactus green using a wide 4" brush. Poured on the a diluted green and covered canvas panel, then poured on a cosmos blue diluted mix followed by a mix of silver paint. The silver paint was heavier than the other colours and sank below them, I lifted one end and drained off as much excess as possible. I left the panel in the autumn sun to dry off in half an hour. The canvas panel was then used in a YouTube product video selling a product of ours.
